Alpha Christ Mural from Saint Joseph Abbey With Accompanying Poem


Artist credit: A mural by Gregory DeWit, St. Joseph Abbey Church, Saint Benedict, Louisiana
Out of a comet cluster,
ascending,
Saturn on the wing with
Ganymede attending,
the ever creating Alpha,
human arms outstretching 
bones, muscles,
strengthening, birth and 
prophecy 
astride an entangled 
Borromean chain,
he arrives as first, wedding
guest, then god,
above cartoon devils carved
into earthy niches,
snarling — or are they 
laughing? — re-enacting the 
seven deadly sins!
mocking as Jesus (Won't
you come blow your horn?")
